  1. Both videos kept my attention, I enjoyed watching them. I found the most funny/informative was the Social Media Experiment -Jack Vale because he really put in perspective for me how easy it is for someone to find out lots about you. You really don't know who knows what about you and from where they found it. We post so much on social media sites we forget who could see it all. Some of the peoples reactions were them laughing which showed how they weren't concerned at all how at all how this stranger knew there names or their type pf dog or who's birthday it is while others did react in a way they were concerned about this stranger and the information the stranger knew about them. Some peoples reactions were funny because they were so confused at what was going on.
    I think personally it is a good thing documenting the smallest details of our lives because its something to keep you busy, it can let other people know whats going on in your life, especially for friends who may be further away. I see no harm in showing the world what we had to eat or saw on our walk to school.

  3. I personally liked the social media experiment video more. I enjoyed this one more because it got me thinking. It made me realize that nothing is private and that it is possible for an actual stranger to be able to tell you about yourself. the first video didnt really catch my attention. Sure it was funny because it was a parody of a song but the second one made more sense to me. I thought it was funny how everyone was scared and surprised that the guy knew information about them. Apparently not everyone knows that what they put on the net is visable to everyone in the world.

  5. I thought the experiment one was creepy but interesting with how a stranger can get that much information off social media accounts. I did like the Instgram video more just because I found it funny, and I can relate because I do a lot of those. I find it interesting how we document so much of our lives on social media. I think we all document it for different reasons. Some might be fore attention and some might be just because they are proud of some things and want to show them off. And sometimes you are eating something just too delcious you have to share it with the world 😉

  7. I think the social media experiment made it a lot more real about how unsafe we are online. I mean, don't get me wrong, the parody was pretty funny and showed how stupid we are in one sense, but the experiment made for a really good wake up call. I think that its pretty ridiculous how we tend to post every detail of our lives. We're practically inviting creeps to stalk us and what not. I mean, sure, its fun to tell everyone what's going on in our lives, to feed our desire to be listened to, but its excessive. Very. Excessive.

  9. I liked the first one because it was funny, and because it was true. For most people, the things they're sharing with the world every day are pretty mundane – no one really cares what you ate for breakfast.
    The second video won out for me, though. I think a lot of people don't realize how much personal information they're sharing with the world. Excessive sharing has become so normalized that people don't even really notice they're doing it until some “creep” comes up and claims to know all about them – it seems creepy until they realize that this is all information they willingly shared.

    I think it's not a good thing that we are so obsessed with documenting every aspect of our personal lives. Mystery makes people more interesting.

  11. In my opinion i think the new instagram obsession id absoloutly stupid. people will make their breakfast and instead of lets say praying, THEY TAKE A PICTURE OF THEIR FOOD. i think its ridiculous! yeah sure you can put a filter and make everything you take a picture of look good but frankly i dont see why people care that much to let alone show people EVERYTHING they do, eat, have fun with , who theyre with, why do people wanna see that? like why do people insist on looking through the news feed at pointless stuff you see for yourself? instagram is stupid. thats why i dont have it. never will. thats my opinon 🙂

  13. I liked the social media experiment a lot; I did not realize it was that simple to track posts based on location. It was humorous and also informative, even a bit creepy. It's really interesting to think about how simple it is for anyone to find out very specific information about you simply by reading up on the electronic trail that you have created yourself. Now to think of all the ways that can be used- that is a little unsettling.
    The parody about instagram was also funny, and quite accurate. It's surprising how cliche most posts are.
    Social media, like much of our world has its pros and cons, but the sheer amount of information posted daily is crazy. Personally, I rarely post anything on Facebook anymore, and that is the only social media website I use on a regular, personal basis. In my opinion, people post far more than is a good idea, in some cases, despite how useful it can be.

  15. I really liked the social media experiment because I realized that there is no privacy in social media and I'm shocked that strangers can see photos of me or know what I did which it's very creepy and some people of the video were shocked that the guy know who they are which I was very shocked to see. I learned to think twice before posting

  17. I definitely liked the Nickelback Parody video better. I thought it was funny instantly and it never failed to hold my attention. It's actually hilarious thinking about all the things I post on Instagram that are true in the video. And I think we are caught up in always documenting what we do, which isn't nescessarily a bad thing because I think it's cool to keep track of what you're doing some days and it is always cool to look back at what you were doing on that exact day. But nontheless, some people do over do it.
    The second video I found was kind of hard for me to watch since I thought it was kind of boring. But it actually did make me think about what I post on those kind of sites and how easily strangers can find out certain information about me. Overall, the messase in the second video was a lot better.

  19. The first video was really funny but both the videos had very good points i really can't tell you which one I pick to be my winner between the two. I find horribly creepy how easy it was for him to find out all that personal info of all the people in the social media experiment and it's really making me reconsider how i use the app. I think that Instagram is a great way for use to use in moderation (which I sadly do not do well) to keep record of events and moments you won't want to forget like a scrapbook so to say. And it keeps people in your life who you don't get the chance to see.

  21. The first video is more of parody with a serious point underneath compared to the second video which is more blunt and straight up with the point he is trying to get across. Although I do love instagram i've been trying to stick to posts that reflect me as an individual instead of posting everything I'm doing. I think everyone should be a bit more careful about what they put out there about themselves. The second video forsure gives you a wake up call in a humorous way that any stranger can find out pretty much anything they'd like from your social media pages and location.

  23. my favorite video was “the social media experiment because it was an eye opener , everything you upload on a social media site can be seen by anyone around the world and when its exposed on the web , there is no taking it back .
    i don't believe its a good thing that we are so obsessed with uploading every little thing about our personal lives because without mystery there wont be as much excitement .
